Business Sweden in Ireland

an image
Ireland is a small but global economy that has experienced strong growth after the global economic recession, with a GDP growth rate of approximately 4 percent during 2016. Domestic demand, exports and a surge in foreign investment within the country contributed significantly to Ireland's growth and are expected to remain the main drivers of economic activity in the near future. However, because of geographic and economic ties to the UK, uncertainty in the country exists, influenced heavily by Brexit.

Growth, the English language, favourable geographic position, a highly skilled workforce and the well-known low corporate tax rate (12.5 percent) cause Ireland to be consistently ranked as one of the best countries in the world in which to do business. Ireland has attracted a large number of multinational companies such as Apple, Google, IBM, Pfizer and Facebook.

Business Sweden has operated in Ireland since 1973. Business Sweden's vast knowledge of Ireland and established network helps Swedish companies with question to establish and grow in the Irish market. We see clear potential in the ICT, energy and clean tech sectors, but also primarily in infrastructure, health care, water and transport.
